Abstract

To tell of Botany in Iowa for twenty-five years, even as presented in the work of members of this Academy, is a task far more difficult than would at first appear. Shall I present a list of all Iowa botany papers for a quarter of a century; such list would mean much indeed, and such list so far as attainable may be found as an appendix to the present paper. But the slightest reflection suggests that such list, long or short, is, as a matter of fact, no measure whatever of either the industry or the achievements of those who make up the botanical membership of this Academy. We have not, I believe, a professional botanist among us. We have doctors, druggists, bankers, gardeners, farmers, teachers, but not a botanist in the sense of single-minded devotion-not an untrammelled student of Botany in Iowa!
